Spencer Savings Bank Partners with Bergen Volunteer Center to Host "Tools For Schools" Drive


Bergen Volunteer Center’s “Tools For Schools” program helps needy families in the area get the supplies they need and excited about the new school year. For years, Spencer Savings Bank has hosted school supply drives to support the Bergen Volunteer Center in Hackensack. This year's three week drive, held at the bank’s headquarters and branches, collected more than 250 school supplies for the children. Items collected will benefit clients of the Mentoring Moms and Mentoring Youth program.

Elmwood Park, NJ, August 31, 2018 --(PR.com)-- Spencer Savings Bank recently hosted a school supply drive to support the Bergen Volunteer Center in Hackensack. The three week drive, held at the bank’s headquarters and branches, collected more than 250 school supplies for the children. Supplies included binders, pencils, notebooks, backpacks and more. Items collected will benefit clients of the Mentoring Moms and Mentoring Youth program.

While most families across the nation are out shopping and getting ready to head back to school soon, not all children will have access to this. For many, purchasing brand new school supplies is a luxury. The Bergen Volunteer Center’s “Tools For Schools” program helps needy families in the area get the supplies they need and excited about the new school year. The program provides school supplies for hundreds of children who are from low-income families, in foster care or who are homeless. Spencer employees recently visited the center to drop off the supplies and meet with some of the staff members.

“The Bergen Volunteer Center gives the most vulnerable children in Bergen County and the surrounding area the ability to take steps to a brighter future. The majority of these students come from financially challenged households and can really use these supplies to start their school year off to a good start,” said Valerie Gaspard, Spencer’s Saddle Brook Branch Manager. “It’s hard to imagine a family not being able to provide the basics to their children. All children should have access to at least the basics of what is needed for school and an education. We felt grateful to be able to help these students out and get them excited for the start of the new school year!”
